  1. Maybe now there will be some transparency about the salaries of the top officials and how much money went to Map’s lavish housing? What about their plans to expand and develop Havensight? What about the insurance claims after the storm? How much did they get? How was the money spent? Was it spent? Is all damages repaired? Why or why not? Who got bonuses? How much money in free rent have we given away to Tenents over the past year and a half that had insurance claims that cover the lost of income and damages from the storm? Do they require tenents to submit proof of insurance, business liscence and tax information before giving our money away? What do head officials do all summer when here is no cruise ships? These are some of the questions that cross my mind , hope someone knows the answer.
